THE LAST MAN ON EARTH

Poffy The Cucumber

The Last Acting Class On Earth. Vincent Price indicates his way through what should be a chilling science fiction actioner, as THE LAST MAN ON EARTH.

Poffy The Cucumber

Filmmaking Outside The Box. DONNIE DARKO meets INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. I put this movie into the DVD player without prior knowledge of its makers or pedigree. As I watched, I couldn’t help thinking of the two above references, with a heavy sprinkling of TWILIGHT ZONE. Lo and behold, it’s the writer-director of DARKO at the helm, Richard Kelly. … Read More
